Just happened to come across this. Apparently an official book is set to be released next month. The description says it includes production materials, interviews, and even some drawings related to the proposed "Cat Keisatsu Beranmee" sequel.

Edit: Here's a picture of an ad for it. Looks like it will have cover art by Tenko.

Here's an English-language site currently taking preorders for the book. They're based in Japan but ship internationally.

Haha so glad I managed to pre-order before that place stopped taking them, the place says they are in print now.

Yeah, unfortunately the site I posted earlier has stopped accepting preorders. The book has jumped to #7 on their best-selling books/magazines list, so I'm guessing they got a lot of preorders. If anyone else wants it, Amazon Japan is still taking preorders, and it would seem that they ship internationally.

Came out to 5,857 yen (about $75 at current exchange rates) with shipping to the USA on Amazon.jp

I can't really afford it... but I ordered anyway.

It really is a nice illustration. I actually like it more than the one for the DVD box.

Anyway, once I get my copy, I'm going to write a review.

Last week, Kappei Yamaguchi, Yattarou's voice actor, mentioned the book on his Twitter account. He posted a picture of the finished book, and stated that "this is where my roots lie".

Hobby Search has updated their page for the book with an example image. It looks like it contains nice, large prints of the art used for the old KNT VHS boxes.

Just got my payment request from HobbySearch. Here's hoping it arrives next week, I'm so excited!

I'll post a review of the book if nobody beats me to the punch. Just seeing the two preview pictures via Felineki's post is making me really anxious to get the book in my hands!

I got my book!!

It's 144 pages, soft cover.  Tenko cover which in small print gives the romaji title as "CatNinDen Teyandee", so I guess that's official.  The first part is official color pictures, like the cover art for the VHS tapes, CDs and even a telephone card.  All just the art without the text and titles.  Next is the character guide which has all the important characters and even a few that were only in 1 or 2 episodes, like the NYC Pizza Cats.  Then some pictures from the credits followed by an episode guide.  Next are all the model sheets, including a few I haven't seen before like Yattarou in the Santa costume, and even one page of "Cat Police Beranmee" drawings from the sequel that was being planned (but sadly never happened).  And finally a bunch of interviews with the cast and crew, this is all Japanese text and may be interesting but won't do you much good if you don't read Japanese.

Sounds great. Looking forward to receiving my copy. According to a poster on 2ch, it includes model sheets for Karamaru with the Komusoutector, which is something I always wanted to see.

Nifty sounding fan book!
The sketches from the planned sequel especially sound interesting.
Are the cast  & crew interviews recent?
